Finance Tycoons Who Are Not Leaving Their Fortunes To Their Children

Being born rich was dream for many people or discovering that you somehow have a wealthy relative and all that fortune is passed on to you. However, there are some people in the world of finance who have accumulated millions and billions of dollars but are against the whole idea of leaving it to their children. Sounds a bit odd, but they have their reasons and we will look at them below.

Jackie Chan

Currently aged 66, Chan is one the most famous martial arts actors in the whole world. His current net worth as of September 2020 was an estimate of $400 million. Married to Joan Lim, he has two Children Jaycee and Etta. Chan believes that his children need to make their own wealth and he said he was not planning on leaving anything to his children. He is quoted to have said, “If they are capable, they can make their own money. If they are not, then they will just be wasting my money.”

Bernard Marcus

Bernard is the founder of Home Depot and he accumulated over $1.5 billion dollars that is almost the same amount of money as the jackpots of a few games at usa online casinos. He is philanthropist and also started the Marcus Foundation. Upon his death, Marcus wants to give most of his money to his foundation which benefits the handicapped and education. He believes that inheriting too much money won’t do his children any good.

Nigella Lawson

Nigella Lawson herself comes from a wealthy background, but she still managed to amass her own millions through being a bestseller and a TV personality just like some celebrities who play games at new zealand online casino sites. Despite the fact that she was born rich, she is not for the idea of her two children getting all her money upon her death. She is quoted to have said, “I am determined that my children should have no financial security. It ruins people not having to earn money.” But she does not plan on leaving her children to starve, but it seems they will have to work for and earn her wealth.
